Medical Misdiagnosis Attorney in Northern California

Doctors have a responsibility to accurately assess their patients and order whatever tests are necessary to arrive at an accurate diagnosis. Unfortunately, physicians and other medical professionals can sometimes make mistakes. When this happens and the patient suffers preventable harm, the medical professional can be held accountable for their error.

The Northern California medical malpractice attorneys at the Law Offices of Larry S. Buckley are experienced in representing clients in such cases and are prepared to offer you a free consultation to determine whether you have a viable lawsuit.

How Medical Misdiagnoses Occur

A medical misdiagnosis may occur for a number of reasons.

  • Failing to order the right tests or failing to correctly interpret the results
  • Failing to spend enough time with the patient to accurately assess their symptoms
  • Failing to listen to the patient’s complaints and symptoms
  • Failing to develop a patient’s full medical history

A misdiagnosis can have serious consequences for the patient. The patient may be harmed by treatment that they didn’t actually need, or suffer harm by not receiving any treatment at all. When a serious illness is involved, such as appendicitis, cancer, blood clots, stroke, or heart attack, delayed or incorrect treatment could be fatal or could cause so much damage that the patient requires additional treatment or surgeries.

Not all medical errors constitute medical malpractice, so it is important to speak with an attorney who can thoroughly assess the fact of your case and help you determine liability.
